so much at stake. we're covering it. just like i told you, we're not red or blue, we're green. man, oh, man, are they wasting a lot of it. see you tonight. captioned by, closed captioning services, inc. >> hello, everyone. it's 5:00 on the east coast. this is "the five." a big show tonight. another alleged sex scandal rocks the democratic party. we'll tell you about the latest erratic behavior from oregon congressman david wu. plus, outrage in texas tonight after a houston cemetery director tries to censor the words "god" and" jesus" from funeral services. then the hbo show "true blood" takes a bite out of fox news. "the five" starts right now. >> president obama is set to address the nation tonight at 9:00 p.m. over the debt
2:01 pm
stalemate. let's start with the latest on that. i noticed that he's going to give the at the same time tonight from the east room, which probably means that jay carney has finally kicked him out of the briefing room, he has to find another place to do it. i thought that if you're going to announce something, you would announce a deal, but instead it sounds like they'll talk about the stalemate. andrea, what do you think he says tonight? >> that's such a good point, why if you don't have a deal why would you come out and address the nation? i think he's caving to the pressure we've heard all day long, that he was silent all weekend. i think he's also caving to the pressure that john boehner said, he's concerned about his image so he needs to go out on the offensive and demagogue republicans. fact is he caved because of pressure from his own party. >> first of all, demonizing
2:02 pm
republicans -- >> you used to do it for a living. >> it all fell apart. >> here's what happened. it's interesting. boehner said he wanted to go along with the deal, and he went back to his caucus and of course he couldn't get them to go along. at the same time cantor is breathing over his back -- >> i don't think that happened. there was a false sense that boehner would be able to deal on tax hikes. >> what would you advise the president to say? >> if i could finish my point here, obama ran into a buzz saw with the democrats, because as skepticism here, you did have entitlement cuts, and they asked me to make a couple phone calls. they asked me to make a couple,
2:03 pm
and i called one -- i'm not saying what state she's from. >> can we play a rhyming game? >> no, you grant, first of all, i'd love to have her meet you. she'd scare the hell out of you. >> and what happened? >> i don't think in the end he could deliver the votes on the democratic side. >> that's right. >> boehner couldn't either. here's what he said to boehner, from somebody in the room. he said, john, i'm getting heat from my side. can you get $400 billion more? john said, i don't think he can. he went back, he didn't get it, but here's where he made his big mistake. why boehner did not return the president of the united states' calls. reminded me of newt gingrich. >> he forgot the number. you know when you have a cellphone, and -- he forgot the number. >> you know about that as a negotiating technique.
2:04 pm
if you want to send a message, nothing is more potent than not returning a phone call. if it's the president of the united states, and you don't return it, you're sending a message to him. >> you're about the only person i know that wouldn't return the president's call. >> apparently i'm in the same company of john boehner. >> apparently they were sending every 8 1/2 years. and president obama did the press conferences two hours before the meeting. let's listen to john boehner just within the hour talking about his side of the story. >> it's not cut, cap and balance, but it is built on the principles of cut, cap and balance that can pass the united states senate as well as the united states house. time's running short. i'm urging my house colleagues to support it. i'm urging my senate colleagues to support it as well. i think it would be irresponsible for the president to veto such legislation. >> one of the things that has been rumored and the white house
2:05 pm
has sort of put it out there, is that president obama will make an argument that he can do this constitutionally through the 14th amendment on his own. a lot of back and forth on this. judge, what say you? >> i think he's on very shaky ground if he does that tonight, without getting too much into the weeds. 14th amendment is one of the amendments written after the civil war. the southern states were returning to the united states of america. there was a huge detect, a federal debt. what did that debt consist of? loans that had been made to the lincoln administration to fight the civil war. so the government was concerned the southern states would say, that was not our debt. that was money used to shoot at our soldiers. so that clause was put in the 14th amendment so that every state in the union would be forced to recognize the federal government's debt, and no state could say -- >> what does that mean now? >> that means at this president does not have authority to go out and borrow money on his own. >> far be it for me to argue with the honorable judge, but your history is exactly right, and it was to try to keep the southerners in the mix here.
2:06 pm
they didn't have to pay a lot of that debt, by the way. but the fact is you're talking about money that's been appropriated by the congress and signed by some president, whether democrat or republican -- the idea that this debt ceiling that, the tea party has convinced us about future spending. it's about paying off debt. >> wait a minute, wait a minute. >> the presidents have gone to raise the debt ceiling. no president, not woodrow wilson, franklin roosevelt, bill clinton tried to -- >> at least in boston they had the tea around, now they're throwing the economy overboard. >> go ahead. >> i was going to say this reminds me a lot of that show "intervention." ever watch it? >> no. >> yes. >> i have a lot in common. tearthetarget is resistant, he s talking to his friends, saying, no, i'm fine, i'm fine. this is not a debate. it's an intervention against spending. right now you have a president
2:07 pm
who's addicted to spending, and the republicans are -- >> oh, that's ridiculous. >> wait a minute. >> i was through three or four intentions myself. >> do you want to tell us about those? >> i don't mind telling you about them. none of them worked till the last one. [laughter] >> that's not a bad analogy actually. there's no new spending. >> wait, wait, excuse me. the appropriations process of the united states, this year, in fy-11, the appropriations committees have not introduced a single new spending bill. why? because it's deadly political. >> can i ask if you think republicans have won this thing? >> oh, no. no, no, no. >> i think they absolutely have. they have two bills on the table, two proposals. both don't include tax increases. it looks like the tea party and john boehner are winning here. >> if you want to lay claim to the tea party, which i think for your party is disastrous -- >> they've completely changed
2:08 pm
the narrative of this whole debate. you wish you had this on the left. >> i do not, because i don't want anarchists on the left. >> because of the tea party, john boehner is the speaker of the house of representatives. the tea party is there because millions of people voted for members of congress who said, i'm not going to let the government borrow another nickel. >> do you think it was between cantor and john boehner, john boehner would win the tea party vote? >> no. >> cantor is out after his job. >> what are they going after? >> i think one of the things that's interesting is that you now have a president who is going to sign a bill that will not have tax increases. something he said he would not do. >> uh-huh. >> you also, five months ago, had the president of the united states call for a lean debt limit vote. he won't get that either. so to me the tea party, whatever you think of them, have been disk. >> they're fighting over timelines now. >> by december 31 --
2:09 pm
>> there's a short-term deal he said he wouldn't sign either. >> i like the feel of your hand on my arm, but there will be tax increases by december 31 when this commission gets done. >> let me ask you about tonight. >> or there will be nothing. >> the president called you up and says, what would you have me say to the american public tonight? >> i managed walter mondale to a 49-state loss, the largest in american history, and now i'm on tv as a political expert. it's a great country. i don't give advice. >> that was great for america. what you did was great for america. >> unless it's suggest don't know, you don't speak about it unless you have positive something to say. >> you certainly don't do it from the east room of the white house. >> why does it matter? >> for example, i remember when president bush did the first oval address on immigration at 9:00 p.m. for the american people. it just matters in that it ratchets up. >> uh-huh.
2:10 pm
>> that's where they have the christmas parties, too, in the east room. i know, because i passed out under the christmas tree in the carter administration. >> i need to hear more of that. >> guys, we're going to move on. we just got started, which is very heated, very fun, but we have to take a quick break and be right back. don't forget, we want to hear from you. email us at  [ male announcer ] everywhere your pet goes

2:15 pm
mr. president, i know you, love you, i support you, but i don't read "the new york times," i'm a liberal, and i'm on fox. i'm not the right guy. i'm not sure that's exactly right. i haven't done a lot of polling here. there's a lot of people who are democrats who watch fox. any americans, this is your bailiwick -- >> well, i read all of it. i'm a voracious news consumer. but i have happen to think that greg had the best point. this is not really about a divide in the country. it's a slam at fox news. >> the idea in a splintered media is basically whining about the fact that there's a new entity in the last 10 years that is strayed away from the lockstep of mainstream media. >> right. >> before there was fox, you never had this discussion, because the centrist of the left owned the ball, owned the playground. they owned the players, they owned the audience. if a conservative went in there, no one would let them play. fox is the new team. they beat the crap out of everybody, and now they have to
2:16 pm
deal with it. >> the president's argument is correct, both sides are being represented. >> yeah, exactly. >> the conservatives can watch fox. >> why don't we hear what president obama had to say so we can know what we're talking about. >> you've got a media that's become much more splint earned. those of you who are of a democratic persuasion are only reading "the new york times" and watching msnbc. if you're on the right, then you're only reading the "wall street journal" editorial page and watching fox news. >> even if you thought that, why would you say -- >> i read "the new york times" and then use it as a toilet paper. >> isn't that simplistic for him to assume that people only -- >> yes. first of all, i want to thank dana for doing my job. i was out for a day. i'm a football player. first of all, the president ought to know, when he talks
2:17 pm
about that, i don't know of six people that watch msnbc, but, you know, i don't want to pick on a rival, because they're not a rival. they're like a kindergartener playing baseball against the yankees. okay, having said that -- how are you, chris? but i think there is something to be said -- and the blogosphere it's dominated by the right. >> what blogs do you look at? what do you mean dominated by the right? >> i read that right wing trash as often as i can. >> democratic underground and -- >> not to mention media matters. >> they galvanized bush. they helped defeat bush. >> can i put a different gloss on this? is it not typical for politicians when things aren't going their way to blame the coverage they're getting? >> sure. >> "the washington post" poll shows 80% of this country is
2:18 pm
divided. and i think that it's ironic we just watched a president talk about these divisions, which he has contributed to. i mean, you listen to the language republicans get to the back of the bus. i mean, he has divided the country further than we've ever been. >> no president has been under assault like this one has. [laughter] >> bob, come on. >> what about the poll about white voters. let me try to educate people both in our audience about this. >> thank you very much, bob. >> you're very welcome. here's the deal. they said, here's the big news. white voters are going toward republicans and minorities are going toward democrats. let me explain something to you. about this time out from the presidential election this starts to firm up. republicans always win white voters and democrats always win by much bigger margins minority voters. >> i don't think john mccain would agree with you on that. >> well, first of all, i don't agree with this poll -- i think he won bigger than two points, but he did win among whites. i think it was four points.
2:19 pm
but let's remember that obama took 60% of the hispanic vote and he took 98% of the black vote. the one guy that -- i'll give bush credit for this. the one guy who understood hispanic voters was george bush. they should are listened to him, because when they got in tancredo, the idiot that keeps running about building 14-foot walls on the border, drove hispanics away. >> i made a mistake earlier when i said the web beat mccain, not bush. this is a hard poll to believe in, because there are whites that say they vote for obama because it sounds good. so that might -- that gulf might be larger. then you have blacks who say they vote for obama because it would sound traitorrist if they didn't. >> that latter one, you're not right on. we factor those in, believe it or not, into the equation, and we do think there's a certain percent who do that, but in blacks -- >> he has dropped in his
2:20 pm
support, not among african americans, but among women and -- >> what? >> i don't think the hispanic vote is solidified. >> you know something, i want to say something, on friday my dear, good friend juan williams sat in this seat against an outragoutrageous barrage of peo. he has a new book coming out "the assault on honest debate." welcome back, brother. i can't handle these people myself.
